Halloween Teacher Gift

This may be a day late and a dollar short, but I wanted to share what I did for CCB's teachers for Halloween.  I bake for them for every holiday, and after a year of doing this, I'm getting requests!  One of CCB's teachers was telling me how they were all excited with the holidays coming up because they love all of the treats.  It is so fun to bake for people that love it. 
I found these cute tins at Tarjay a couple of months ago when they first put their Halloween stuff out.  If there is one thing I have learned about Tarjay is to get it if you think it is cute.  For if you think it is cute, chances are that everyone else does as well! 

This year I baked Brother Boniface's Pumpkin Bread from Southern Living 1998.  Instead of the pecans, I substituted chocolate chips because what isn't better with chocolate?!  They were a hit.  I'm not sure if they made it home with any of her teachers.  This year I was smart and made up a cute little recipe card so if they want to try out the recipe, they can! 

So, even though this is a Halloween theme gift, these are fantastic all fall and would be a great Thanksgiving gift.
